Synopsis

Modern Women Playwrights of Europe brings together seventeen major plays by European women of the twentieth century. Some of these works are internationally known, while others appear here in translation for the first time. Featuring selections by playwrights from several European countries-from Spain and Greece to Iceland and Scandinavia-this volume presents plays that have been largely overlooked by most existing anthologies of Continental drama. This unique collection includes important plays from the beginning of the twentieth century, such as Gabriela Zapolska's The Morality of Mrs. Dulski (essentially unavailable in English until now) and Kalliroi Siganou-Parren's The New Woman (never before translated into English). It also offers modern classics from such dramatists as Ana Diosdado, Marguerite Duras, Elfriede Jelinek, Dacia Maraini, Paloma Pedrero, and Gerlind Reinshagen, and some very recent plays from Nordic women.

Representing both a significant re-examination of the canon and a valuable contribution to the study of comparative literature, Modern Women Playwrights of Europe can be used as a core text or a supplement for courses in modern European drama, modern drama, comparative drama, women's literature, and women's studies.
